Listed here are all GED and HiSET prep facilities and testing centers in the Miles City region. In Montana, you will have to pass the five HiSET or four GED subtests if you want to acquire your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma.
HiSET® and GED testing is available online and at certified Montana testing centers.
The assessments are for adults who have never completed high school, and they offer one more opportunity to obtain an equivalent credential.
The exams measure knowledge and skills at a level similar to what HS seniors are expected to command upon graduation.
The GED includes four separate, modular sub-exams covering the subjects of
- Language Arts (Reading & Writing in one exam)
- Science (including Physics, Chemistry, Scientific Method)
- Social Studies (including History, Economics, Geography)
On the HiSET exam, there are separate English Writing and English Reading subtests, so five in total. The HiSET is offered in a paper-and-pencil format and on a computer, while the GED exam is entirely computer-based.
All GED and HiSET sub-exams may be dealt with separately, and in any order you prefer.
In the past, to earn your Montana High School Equivalency credential, your personal appearance at an official state-recognized Montana test site was required. There was no HiSET or GED test over the Internet.
Recently, though, we witnessed great new developments with the launch of online HiSET and GED testing options. For information on the ‘HiSET-At-Home’ online exam or the ‘GED Online Proctored Test,’ check the bottom of this page.

A couple of years ago, Montana replaced the GED exam with the HiSET for adults seeking to earn their high school equivalency (HSE) diplomas. The GED had, for decades, been more or less synonymous with the HSE diploma, but now the GED is one of the options states can use for the purpose of examining candidates’ competencies and knowledge at the high school level and Montana recently reintroduced the GED alongside the HiSET.
The HiSET has five subtests in Writing, Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies, whereas the GED exam contains four subtests since the reading and writing portions were combined in one single Language exam.
*) Center for Academic Success – Miles Community College
Miles Community College’s Center for Academic Success offers ABE (Adult Basic Education) classes and a GED (General Education Development)/HiSET program. This program gets adult learners 18 years of age and older ready to test successfully for the five tests of the HiSET examination of the four GED modules.
The school offers individualized instruction at no charge in the five testing topics of literacy-reading, literacy-writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. Having your Montana HSE diploma will certainly lead to better job options, and it opens the doors to higher learning institutions. The HiSET or GED diploma is your ticket to a better life and a brighter future!
Launching the Online HiSET and GED Exams
In earlier days, taking the five HiSET subtests in an online format was not an option. But recently, we saw the arrival of a new online option, the ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ format.
When you sit for the HiSET exam at home, an online proctor guides you through the process and sees if all goes correctly. If you want to read more about this interesting new development, go to Launching the online HiSET test. For more information on the Online Proctored (O.P.) GED exam, <- check this age.
Modular HiSET and GED
The HiSET exam became available in January 2014 and can be taken on a computer or on paper. The HiSET exam contains 5 subtests that cover the fields of Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language Reading, and Language Writing. Now, Montana has reintroduced the GED exam as well, which has 4 sub-exams. Let’s see how you can prepare for the exams best.
The HiSET and GED exams are modular, meaning you can take the subtests (modules) separately. Developing well-rounded writing skills is more crucial than ever before.
Writing Skills-To complete the HiSET or GED exam successfully, it is absolutely important that candidates perform well on the writing tasks. They will have to demonstrate their ability to read with understanding, examine discussions, and use information from principal texts.
In order to pass the HiSET or GED exam, applicants must be able to create structured sentences, deal with details and main topics in their answers, and demonstrate competence in the normal rules of English grammar in their essays.
Age Requirements in Montana
In the state of Montana, students can sit for the GED or HiSET exam when they are 16 years old or older. For applicants 16, 17, or 18 years of age, some pretty strict additional policies and restrictions apply.
Among other requirements, they must submit signed and notarized Age Waiver Application Forms, hold permission from their former school, and demonstrate signed parental consent.
Usage test-takers must attend a GED or HiSET preparation course and show proof that they are academically ready for the Montana GED or HiSET exam by reaching satisfactory scores on the HiSET OPT (Official Practice Test) or the GED Ready Practice Test.
